For many believers, it’s a constant battle of acceptance, and actually, if it _isn’t_, they got off WAY too easily in their religion/denomination/group.

He does raise an interesting point, although it is limited in its applicability.

The “God is You” / Ego argument does not necessarily apply to all religions. He describes New Age very well. He describes “roll your own God” groups.

But what of very elaborate religions that do NOT ascribe to the “God agrees with me”?

If what he says is true, why are there “tests of faith” – a constant theme in many religions? If God agrees with me and I agree with God, then I am God and God is me. But if I’m fighting it constantly, going between rejection and hesitant acceptance, to acquiescence and PERHAPS further… that’s not a “me fighting me” situation.

It might not be a “me fighting God” either. I’m agnostic for a reason – I have no freakin’ idea.

His argument falls apart when speaking about people who are attempting to embrace a system that goes against their wishes and thoughts. He’s speaking of the easy faith groups but not for the challenging ones, imo.
